"From our lone block of Mariafeld comes this intriguing illustration of a unique and singular clone of Pinot Noir. Somewhat more robust and thick skinned than most Pinot noir selections, the Mariafeld was chosen for success in the Alpine regions of Europe. When transplanted to Carneros it crafts a wine that is abundantly perfumed and rich in color and tannins. Our 2015 bottling offers dark cherry and wild strawberry notes with a hint of cola nut and sassafras. A rich, lush wine on the palate, the vibrant fruit core is augmented with spice and hints of black tea. Just 507 cases produced."
